The moment you hear the name 'Cambodia' almost everyone thinks of the awe-inspiring Angkor Wat. Trust me it is a spectacular place but I think there are many other mind-blowing places than Angkor Wat. Speaking my heart here, I found the Bayon temple, one of the most famous structures in the Angkor complex, much more breathtaking. Continue reading "A Virtual Trip to Bayon Temple in Cambodia"
The concept of 'Treasure' varies from one person to another. When we say 'Treasures from the Sea', for some it could mean pearls, corals or the likes of it. For me, they are sea shells! Yes, I'm crazy about them. If I visit a beach, I make sure that I go shell picking and bring home some different and unique sea shells.

Lepakshi is one of those places that mesmerizes you with its history and architecture. Being a Heritage buff (okay not a buff)...Heritage lover, the tantalizing sight of carvings, sculptures and mural paintings are simply spellbinding.

Continue reading "Best Places to Visit in March - My Pick!"
December was a busy month for me. I was busy travelling to my native place (My mom and Dad's home town) with dear hubs and my son. Decided to make it more than just a family thing by visiting interesting places. This is one such place. I love visiting old temples as I love the sheer beauty of rock structures. Gotto admire the craftsmanship when there was only tools with limited capabilities. But it didn't limit their talent.
Just a brief introduction about this place, its history and where it is.
